Why GalliumNine is not included in Wine-Staging for the moment?

There are interesting links to read That should be pretty nice to see GalliumNine being pushed in Wine-Staging. In a nutshell once you read links above you may understand that it requires a lot of work :)
  • rewritte the code
The second part written below is my own opinion so could be really useless to read

I used one of my PC for Mesa/GalliumNine. This is a dedicated PC only for this project. To be honest this is really cool when you notice that you can play your favorite games using Open Source Driver and AMD Card -- I am speaking for AMD users here --. It does not mean that it works all time and it does not mean that you may have interesting FPS for all games.

For the 4 past years I tested a lot of games (Windows) using wine and my GTX 680 -- NVIDIA Card hard-moded to GRID K2 --. I used my own AMD cards for perhaps one or two months to play only a couple of games. To be more precisedI did this because I worked on Xen VGA PassThrough -- to be able to access my own AMD graphic card for my virtual machine --. I discovered GalliumNine in October, 2014.

Gallium Nine is really interesting! This is from my own point of vue. Wine developers shared another point of view. Quite understandable!

Refresh iXit repo xf86-video-ati for DRI3 (Gallium Nine)

Original repo for xf86-video-ati was refreshed a couple days ago. To be honest the content of this article is quite useless. I just wanted to generate the patch done by Ixit Team who maintain a patched repo on github with DRI3 support for EXA/GLAMOR. This one is used for Gallium Nine. So it is the occasion to generate this patch
#Clone the original repo
git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-ati
cd xf86-video-ati/
# That's the hash to checkout
git checkout c9f8f642fd495937400618a4fc25ecae3f8888fc

cd ..

# Get the patched repo from iXit and unzip it
wget "https://github.com/iXit/xf86-video-ati/archive/master.zip" -O master.zip
unzip master.zip

# Rename folder
mv xf86-video-ati a
mv xf86-video-ati-master b

mkdir -vp patches/xf86-video-ati

# Generate the patch
diff -Napur a/ b/ > patches/xf86-video-ati/DRI3_for_Glamor_and_EXA.patch

# Remove folders
rm -rf a b

#Re-clone the original repo
git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/xorg/driver/xf86-video-ati
cd xf86-video-ati/

#Patch it!
patch -p1 < ../patches/xf86-video-ati/DRI3_for_Glamor_and_EXA.patch
